YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT THE LAW REQUIRES
If you think you might be facing an ADA lawsuit, contact us immediately. We will help you understand the requirements of the law and how to avoid being sued.
In 2014, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against Walgreens, alleging that the company failed to comply with the ADA by failing to accommodate a customer who used a wheelchair. The DOJ claimed that the pharmacy chain did not allow the customer to use a self-service kiosk to purchase his prescription medication.
In addition to requiring businesses to comply with the ADA, the Department of Justice has issued guidance to help businesses understand their obligations under the act. For example, if a business provides services to the general public, such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, banks, and other establishments, then it must be accessible to people with disabilities. Especially If a business receives federal funding, then it must follow the guidelines set forth by the Department of Justice.
